Choosing the color for a new roof is a big decision and should be made with careful consideration. Depending on maintenance, your asphalt roof will serve you for close to 25 years. It is always wise to consider all of our options and cross out those that aren’t for you in the elimination process.

There are several colors to choose from, and the task can be daunting. Let’s look at the 7 most popular shingle colors for 2023 in the Tampa area.

  • Light Brown Shades: Brown shingles are an excellent choice for a home with a traditional or rustic feel. Brown blends nicely with the woodsy landscaping and isn’t too flashy. 
  • Charcoal Gray: This is an excellent choice for those looking to add a dark, neutral color to their home. Charcoal gray does not clash with siding colors, and will not deter from the overall look of the home. 
  • Pewter Gray: This is a popular choice for shingles. It is soft, elegant, and light in the gray shade which makes it look great in modern homes. 
  • Tan: This is similar to the light brown shade but slightly softer. The tan shingles are warm and inviting which works well with most siding colors.
  • Green: Do you want your home to blend in with the natural surroundings? Perhaps green is for you. Some shades are forest green and emerald green. 
  • Light Blue: This color offers something a little different and more unique than the grays and browns. This offers a light airy appearance to the home.
  • Black: Midnight black or oak black will set a statement for those looking for an edgy appearance.
